Philip Seymour Hoffman life and death Astrology by Tara Greene

Philip Seymour Hoffman Astrology Tara Greene

Sad tragic news of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death at 46 years old, from an  apparent heroin O.D. although the autopsy hasn’t been conclusive yet. Considered to be one of the finest actors of his generation. He won the Academy Award for his role in CAPOTE. His sudden passing has engendered a wave of shock and sadness throughout Hollywood. There was a  minute of silence on Broadway today in his honor.

Admired by his colleagues in the theatre and film for his intense, sensitive, honest, indepth acting. Mr. Hoffman leaves three young children. We will never watch more stupendous acting and directing roles which he could and would have accomplished.

He had  been an addict when younger but sober since he was 22 years old. A year ago prescription drugs then heroin and recent rehab stints were reparted. Why the relapse recently? What demons did Mr. Hoffman have?

Lets look at his astrology chart to discover who Philip really was.                                                               

 

 

Philip Seymour Hoffman Tara Greene ASTROLOGYBorn July   23 1967 Fairport New York, no exact birth time

I have no accurate birth time so have used NOON for a famous person.

The SUN had just entered LEO the sign of the actor, the dramatic, passionate, willful leader. A new experience in being born a Leo, needing to be center stage, being admired by the world. Leo is also the sign of the child and of the heart.

As his birth time is unknown, at noon, the Moon- his Mother appears to be in Aquarius. His parents divorced when he was young and his mother brought him and three siblings up alone. Moon in Aquarius people are strong individuals, marching to their own drummers, quite brilliant thinkers. If he was born later this day, after 10 pm then his Moon would be in Pisces, the sign of inspired actors,dreamers and addicts.

Mercury at 12 degrees Cancer, Philip’s modus communication is exactly on the United States Sun. This is  a very powerful degree. Connected to Fixed Star SIRIUS. It makes him sentimental, close to his mother, his roots, his foundation. Very emotional, moody, loves children, to eat, a nurturer. 

VENUS is in VIRGO at 9 degrees. He was a workaholic, a dedicated and humble man who loved to be of service. He was very intellectual and analytical, noticing every detail of a character’s mannerism and speech which he played.  He was probably insecure underneath it all, and his own worst enemy with a very well-developed inner critic.

Mars is his masculinity, passion, drive, defenses was at 1 degree Scorpio. This man was intense, powefull, secretive, in control, demanding. He was fascinated with the shadow, his own and his characters. He loved psychology and getting right inside of whatever character he portrayed. He was quite fearless.

JUPITER- expansion, optimism, was at 12 degrees LEO. Jupiter in Leo is the King, royalty, golden, striving to be the best, can be overly optimistic. Someone who wants to taste everything in life. A natural actor, a man of great passion and heart. Jupiter is optimistic, good humour, big bellied, JOVIAL. He strove to inspire others.

SATURN represents his father, karma, obstacles,limitations. At 12 degrees ARIES it’s in square to his Mercury. This man had enormous drives and energy to burn.  A fighter, a warrior, independent and entrepreneurial spirit. An original thinker. At odds with his father and the establishment in general. Saturn in Aries limits Aries natural unlimited energy and passion, one can burn out to quickly.

URANUS at 21 degrees Virgo is conjunct Pluto at 18 degrees Virgo. This is a hallmark of an entire 60’s generation. Naturally rebellious soulful tenders of their own psyche’s garden.  

CHIRON at 29 degrees+ of PISCES is opposite Philip’s Uranus. This is a most important degree in any astrology chart as it is the very last degree possible. Considered to be an extremely karmic point it indicates finishing up an entire cycle of lifetimes and getting ready to step off the karmic wheel to become enlightened. Chiron is Retrograde, indicating that Mr. Hoffman wasn’t quite ready to complete his liberation yet.This is something of a BODHISATVA aspect. Someone who attains enlightenment but returns to the earth plane out of compassion, to ease the suffering of others.

NEPTUNE PLANET OF ADDICTIONS

is at 21 degrees SCORPIO and Retrograde squaring JUPITER. Neptune in Scorpio indicates dark passions, shadow demons, nightmares, deep-seated fear, sex, power and control issues. Facination with the dark side, with death, depression. In Square to Jupiter in Leo these demons are enlarged, ferocious, hounds of hell. It also means being too optimistic and totally fascinated with how far he could push the edge, walking the razor blade and being obsessed by it.

NEPTUNE is also the ruler of Pisces and all creative people, artists, actors, and also the planet of addictions, illusion delusion, being able to be a chameleon, which is why he was such an incredible actor. 

NORTH NODE was at 2 degrees of TAURUS. Very solid, grounded, sensual, practical, reliable was what he was supposed to embody as his highest spiritual goal. The NOrth NOde is in square to his Leo SUN, indicating a karmic imperative, a necessity, to shine that spiritual light brightly on the stage of life. This he most definitely did. The SOUTH NODE {not shown in the chart} is right on his natal MARS in Scorpio at 2 degrees. 

These aspects  indicate a  fierce inner struggle, a battle. Philip was a fearless warrior, driven by his passions to be brilliant { his SUN in  LEO} and his demons and his obsessions { Scorpio} from birth and even before.  He achieved much in a relative short life.  His chart is really not that complicated. 

ASTROLOGY AT HIS DEATH

Apparently Hoffman had recently been in rehab but had been doing heroin heavily for the past six weeks or so preceding his death. Apparently he said if he didn’t quit heroin he knew that he would die. Can Astrology predict death?

A number of MAJOR Hard astrology transits were hitting Mr. Hoffman for the past year or so but intensifying now. His Natal SATURN- karma, and Mercury at 12 degrees of CARDINAL signs was being pummeled by PLUTO, URANUS and Venus.

URANUS conjunct Saturn alone is sudden death in and of itself.  Unexpected chaos, uncontrollable erratic energy. And Pluto squaring that and opposing his sensitive Mercury in CAncer. 

SATURN was also transiting his natal NEPTUNE, planet of addictions, secrets, power and control. That is also an intensely heavy transit meaning SATURN= death by drugs, addictions. Saturn would also be squaring his MOON in late Aquarius or early PISCES. Another heavy emotional depressing transit. 

CHIRON at 11 degrees PISCES was opposite to his Natal Venus. He has been vulnerable and weakened by that transit. His old wounds had been re-opened. Addictions, as Carl Jung astutely observed are the thirst for spirit, the pun, alcohol or other drugs to numb the pain of separation from SOURCE.

Neptune at 4 degrees + of PISCES is also opposing his natal VENUS. Venus is desire, in Virgo it is desire for perfection. The illusion of finding it, the dream of bliss, the addiction to perfection, to spacing out, freeing oneself, victimhood, or guilt or simply numbing out or just the love of being High.

Transiting NORTH NODE is exactly on his natal Mars at 1 degree Scorpio and conjunct his SOUTH NODE at 2 degrees. This is a transiting nodal reversal indicating old Scorpionic obsessions being highlighted. These nodes conjunct every 18+ years and oppose every 9+ years. In one sense he was aligned with the movement of spiritual energy now. It did involve dealing with his obsessions, his shadows. The North Node was also in square to his SUN. Fighting the demons with the LIGHT of his own WILL or merging with the Phoenix of rebirth.

The last Total Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees of SCORPIO on November 3 2013 was exactly square to Mr. Hoffman’s Jupiter in Leo. Eclipse’s will trigger energies which last up to a year. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth and in square to his Jupiter in Leo, makes one think they are the  King and can get away with anything. Pride, hubris, danger, playing fast and dark, love of speed demons is all part of that energy. 

Philip’ s work will be remembered. My condolences to his long time partner and their three children and his family.  He left a powerful acting legacy and serves to inspire future generations.

Mr. Hoffman was a number 8 in Numerology the symbols of Strength, Justice, the Star, a karmic number. He was under the influence of the number 9 since his last birthday. He was at the end of a 10 year cycle.

Spiritual declutter, your highest goals from Tara Greene.

OMG There’s so much going on.
I started to write about the Astrology of Woody Allen and Dylan Farrow’s open letter about Woody sexually abusing her a s a child. I will go into more depth with that one and include the two of them and  Mia Farrow’s chart as well.
Then Philip Seymour Hoffman dies of a heroin overdose. I wanted to do a short article on him too.
Then there’s WTF is going on with TORONTO?
Justin Bieber, Rob Ford, Drake on SNL. It’s a hot spot. Another article.
I cant keep up!
Then there was IMBOLC, and the Ubberbowl and SOLAR FLARES to boot.
and its almost Mercury Retrograde.
And I am feeling so tired.
Feb 3- 9th WE ARE UNDER THE MAGICAL SPIRITUAL ENCHANTING SPELL of Mercury conjunct NEPTUNE 
Its’ fairies and Unicorns and soul mates and higher angelic inspiration.
Which explains why  you most likely are feeling so spaced out. And tired?
DREAM ON all these days. Seriously.  Imagine, create, let the inner muse sing out.
MAGICAL QUINTILE ASPECT between The NORTH NODE & PLUTO now
What is a QUINTILE? Not to be confused with a Quincunx.
A quintile is the division of  a 360 degree circle into 5 equal parts. It’s a Pentagram formation, sacred to Venus. It consists of a sextile of 60 degrees + 1/5 of that amount. 60 + 12 = 72. A quintile is  any 72 degree aspect between planets.
The number 72 is very sacred as it is about how long it takes a “Fixed Star’ to move one degree. It is half of the sacred 144 which is mentioned as 144,000 enlightened beings it will take to shift the world’s consciousness.

The NORTH NODE
represents our collective and personal highest spiritual goal. The NN travels around in approximately 19 year repeating cycles. The sacred stones of Callanish Scotland and other famous stones circles are cosmic clocks mapping the solar and lunar cycles which create eclipses. Eclipses can only occur when the Sun and the Moon align closely with the transiting NODES OF THE MOON.
There is a SOUTH NODE directly opposite to the North.
Esoterically the SOUTH NODE represents the collective past. It is a karmic intake spot, it is your past lives, and your DNA, it can be your families “story.:  
Each person has their North Node, called the DRAGON’S HEAD and the South Node is the Dragon’s Tail in their astrology charts.
In some branches of Astrology, in Indian Vedic Astrology the North Node  is one of the most powerful aspects in the chart.
With Pluto and the North Node in this blessed angle we can really work out our karma.  Especially with the NORTH NODE in Scorpio, which is the energy we’ve been working with for the last 1.5 years, this is about throwing the ONE RING to rule them all into the Fires of MORDOR for good. ie. YOUR EGO and power trips.
SCORPIO is a Triple aspected evolutionary SOUL sign,
Passing from the Unconsciousness stage of the SCORPION for which it is notoriously famous for its poisonous sting. This is the ruthless, use and toss for power and control aspect which way too many of us have been stung by. 
Scorpio must evolve above that stage and becomes the EAGLE and learns to fly above the negative emotional/ sexual drives of abuse of power and learn to use its’ own power wisely. The Scorpio Eagle can still be a bird of prey and dangerous but not self- destructive.
Next the SCORPIO rises up to its highest aspect of being a PHOENIX, able to rebirth itself over and over from its own deathly fire and ashes. From this it obtains the gift of spiritual healing. By dying to its own ego desires, by letting go of the need for power, Scorpions rise as spiritual healers. Helping other souls transitions between life and death as therapists, as peacemakers and go-betweens. 
North Node leaves SCORPIO enters LIBRA on February 18/19
For the next 14 days use this auspicious time to get unblocked. To pack up the old karmic cycle.
De-clutter your emotions, your armouring, your regrets, your fixations, your obsessions, your stubbornness, need to control, fail for spite, addictions, fear of intimacy.

A new era of partnerships, balancing, diplomacy, evening out the score, beauty, arts, women, Ruled by Venus. South Node in Aries leaving the bullying, me first attitude in the red dust.
Will write more about that later.
